Which Survey should I choose for my home purchase ?

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Claydon and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Claydon property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, you should you go for a Building Survey instead. This survey is less cheap but it will give you a thorough analysis of the Claydon property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of if buying a house close to a rubbish landfill

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste e.g. commercial waste disposal. No one wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Concerns might include tars and other hazardous materials. Health problems like downs syndrome have been linked to landfill sites .

Claydon surveyors will examine structural issues linked to the landfill. Your solicitor will commission environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database in addition to Ipswich Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I have heard that clay soil can cause difficulties for property in Claydon. What should we expect a Home Buyers Survey to include, and what defects will be reported on?

The adverse impact clay soil can have on a house can be significant, with subsidence being a common example. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content. Signs like a difficult-to-open bathroom window or small cracks in the bathroom ceiling can be early indications of very serious structural issues. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like keeping standing water on the property in check. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.

House Prices

There is a potential buy to let house in IP6 on for £182, 580. What will a Claydon RICS chartered surveyor take into account when calculating house prices in Claydon ?

There is a vast array of things that can add to or subtract from the price of property like the amount of ground rent payable or whether the property is listed. As an indicator, one can try to look at house values achieved in the area for similar houses.

The average house price registered at the Land Registry in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £175, 980, which is £6, 600 less than the price you are intending to pay. 36, Chequers Rise, Great Blakenham, Ipswich, Mid Suffolk, Suffolk, IP6 0LT a detached house sold for £220, 500 .

The only way to get an impartial property valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as a core component.
